It sounds like you had a lot of diversity within your team, Khimik, did that affect your team in any way?
Nah, we were all pretty good mates. Most of us had the thing in common that we were all born in Europe and felt closer because of that. For the most part we'd been a team since U10 level with a few exceptions - our Greek player, Con Tsorkoraklidis was bought from Adelaide Olympic and Davor Maric came from Croatia Raiders when he was cut. Our team was like this:
Colin McMurray (Australian born Scot)
Dejan 'DJ' Svizvkovic (Serb)
Chris Daniels (English)
Davor Maric (Croat)
Nassir Hossam (Lebanese or Egyptian, I forget which)
Dariuz Szcurowski (Pole)
Callum Jones (Welsh)
Ahmed Hossam (see Nassir)
Shaun Bedford (English)
Con Tsorkoraklidis (Australian born Greek)
With subs of:
Ricardo 'Ricky' Sosa (Australian born Portuguese)
Talcay 'Tom' Salak (Turk)
Chris Muller (Australian born German)
Alex Peters (Australian)
David Finnegan (Australian)
Theo Papadopolous (Australian born Greek)
And some others I forget. We were a close team. We played good, honest attacking football. Had a great team spirit - sort of an all for one, one for all type of attitude. The only time someone had a go at another was whem he was bitching in the change room and someone slapped him in the head
It's a shame a lot of us had to leave through injury (Sosa, Jones and Me), moving to other teams (McMurray) and moving elsewhere (Con - went back to Greece, last I heard he was thinking of trying out for Olympiakos; and Muller - moved to Sydney). Last season we finished dead last and won three games
I miss playing with them.
